Head Coach Henry Omino confirmed to SPL that his side has established an agreement with Opiyo and that the paper work is being accelerated to see the player at Stima within the transfer window.
“We are almost completing the signing of former Posta Rangers goal-keeper Levis Opiyo and I can confirm that the talks are at advanced stage. We are hopeful of securing his signature within this period,” said Omino.
Opiyo’s inclusion in the squad will raise levels of competition in the department with the main victim being first keeper Gabriel Andika, who will be facing challenge from three talented players. Notably, Omino has said that he (Andika) did not give his best in the league’s first leg terming Opiyo’s capture as a fastener to the knot.
“Andika needs a stiff competition in the goal-keeping sector and I think with Opiyo, Agwanda and Rakula, the department will be very strong,” he added.
